    The Invisible Man

    ★★★½

    Elizabeth Moss is fantastic and manages to sell the whole thing, and considering how much of the movie is her by herself reacting to empty rooms that's no small feat. There are some super tense moments in this, and it's surprisingly light on jump scares for a Blumhouse movie*. My only big issue was the score. It's fine during quiet moments, but when scenes with more action are happening it becomes so loud and bombastic that it would almost be…

    Decently creepy, but you know it’s fiction because she uses Bing.

    Happy Together

    ★★★½

    This film somehow managed to suck me into a dysfunctional relationship without making me want to see them work it out or wish one of them ill, and that's a feat by itself. Wong Kar-Wai and Tony Leung just have that much power when they work together. Not much more I can say other than that without spoilers. There's no break ins, hitmen, or cousins, so I will at least say it's the most traditional romance I've seen from the…

    ★½

    Yikes. Just yikes. Half of the can't act, the writer can't write, and the director can't direct. Shots are frame weirdly and he jumps the 180 degree line like a game of hopscotch for no reason. The movie is a Final Destination style tale where eight people get a word in their fortune cookie, and that word will somehow relate to their deaths. The kills themselves are often laughably bad with some really wonky CGI. This would almost be one…

    ★★★

    This feels like less of a horror movie and more like a sorority comedy played as a drama with horror elements. The main plot takes 30 minutes before it gets to the graveyard, and 60 minutes before anything remotely spooky happens. The last 20 minutes, on the other hand, goes all in. I'm not saying it's bad, I do like the characters and the plot isn't bad. I could probably watch a sorority comedy with this plot and a different…

  • The Scooby-Doo Project

    The Scooby-Doo Project

    Kicking off Hooptober Ocho with the only rewatch on my list. It's not great, but mediocre Scooby is better than no Scooby at all. The short uses the Blair Witch template more to poke fun at some Scooby tropes rather than to do any parody of Blair Witch itself, and the lack of a defined mystery makes it feel sort of aimless. Scott Innes is also my least favourite Scooby voice actor and always feels like an off-brand imitation, but he's at least a decent Shaggy. It's cute for a watch, but I likely never would have rewatched this if it wasn't assigned.
